Registration for the European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA)’s Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) Seminar closes today, January 9, 2019. The seminar will take place in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium, February 11–12, 2019, and is this year titled: ‘Conventional HIP and Rapid Cool HIP: Developments in Material Property and Microstructural Relationships.’

The seminar programme will feature presentations and case studies from industry experts, as well as a site visit to Engineered Pressure Systems International (EPSI) in Temse, Belgium. The list of speakers and topics is as follows:

  • Influence of HIPing temperatures & cooling rate on the development of the properties of IN738LC, CM247LC and IN718, Professor Moataz Attallah, University of Birmingham
  • Excalibure centre presentation, Frédéric Bernard, Burgundy University
  • Multi-discipline CFD-FEM simulation of HIP with integrated Heat treatment of Cold Work Tool Steel D7, Carola Birke, IWM at RWTH Aachen University
  • The world market of metal powders & steels, status quo and outlook, Benedikt Blitz, SMR Premium GmbH
  • Advanced Argon Management for HIP Processes (an overview on HIP installations with customised argon supply solutions, from small R&D sized units up to large production units), Matthias Bors, Linde
  • Uniform Rapid Quenching (URQ) and High Pressure Heat Treatment of IN718: Effect on Microstructure, Johannes Gardstam, Quintus Technologies AB
  • How does HIPing influence properties of EBM-built Alloy 718, Professor Shrikant Joshi, University West (Sweden)
  • HIP sintering of different metallic powders, Yacine Kchaou, Burgundy University
  • The HIP parts for plastic machines, screws, cylinders and double cylinders. Production and materials. Existing HIP equipment at SPM with NADCAP qualification, Aaron Schutz, SPM
  • Powder HIPing of pure Nb as an alternative to C103 alloy for the manufacture of combustion thrusters, Alessandro Sergi, University of Birmingham
  • The role of high-pressure heat treatment in the automation of Additive Manufacturing post processing, Jim Shipley, Quintus Technologies AB
  • Overview of the required cooling types applied to typical metallurgical applications available for industrial HIP users, Maxime Pauwels, EPSI

Powder Metallurgy:The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
